7:43 am
show?! man, i was happy to see a sneezing panda clip! trevor, have you eaten today? you sound a little grumpy. [ laughter ] [ male announcer ] connect all your wi-fi-enabled devices with u-verse high speed internet. rethink possible.
7:44 am
>> california governor jerry brown is facing rebellion from his own party to reform k through 12 public education spending. for more on this unexpected development let's talk with nbc bay area political analyst larry gueston. what's your issue here? normally you go forward when you have the pubpublic's support. >> the issue is money and lots of it. the question is where are we going to go with this money because we're not talking about $49 billion, kris.
7:45 am
$49 billion that goes for k through 12 education in california. far more than any other policy area in the state and given the state's poor performance in testing area such as science, math, english. the governor wants to shake things up with the way the state spends that $49 million. >> i don't think you will find anybody that says schools couldn't use more money. however, the governor's plan itself. that's the rub. the way that he wants to reform it is not something that everybody can get onboard with. a little controversial. the governor wants to earmark their 2 billion. at least two, maybe three for schools that have underperforming students or students who don't speak english. the money is going to go beyond the funds that all districts get and the usual aames of per capita, basis stuff that he gets and he believes that if you target these students they will have a better opportunity to make it through the system so that's the goal.
7:46 am
give more money to the poor-performing districts and we'll see better outcomes. >> and that brings around the pushback because people say it's wonderful for those kids that are in the lower-performing districts and what about the kids in the average districts or the high-performing districts? >> legislators and governors own parties say hey, this changes the way the state distributes funds and they say wait a second, it will penalize the districts that go the extra mile to raise funds through partial tax elections and through that extra bit of energy that brings up a lot of districts beyond what they'll be getting from the state. so some are also upset with another angle and some are also upset because hey, when this proposition 30 thing came around, 6 billion plus for the next seven years and all of these new taxes and nobody said anything about using the money that way, and that's leaving some people to say wait a second, isn't this a little bit of false advertising? so the pushback, if you will, is
7:47 am
from republicans, yeah, and suburban democrats who say, hey, you know what? this isn't fair for our schools and you know what? they've got the capacity here to make the governors' life pretty miserable on this issue. >> he seems intent on it and it seems this is part of what he wants his legacy to be so what can we say about a possible outcome? >> he had a press conference when he said don't tread on me on this one and that sounds good. great for tv, but the fact is it may not be reality. the best guess here is that the legislatu legislature, they'll commit to a limited and perhaps very limited version of a proposal thereby keeping traditional funding formulas in place. you know what? the big picture, though is something else. it has to do with the overall amount of money and i know $49 billion seems like a lot, but remember, we're the country's largest state and it simply isn't enough. the facts are the facts. california ranks 47th among the
7:48 am
50 states in per capita spending even with proposition 30. so unless we get our act together and unless california gets serious about raising new revenues, these kinds of fightses will only be exacerbated in the months and years to come basically between the haves and the have notes. >> we can't do it with just the wrapping paper and chocolate sales. we can't take any more. sorry. thank you very much, larry, we will see you next week. >> a large unemployment numbers were a disappointment. so how will the numbers look for the month of april? for more on that and what else is happening in the world of business, here's cnbc's tyler matheson. >> two events that wall stree r streeters will focus and they're not may day or the start of the national hockey league playoffs. first, it's the latest policy meeting on interest rates for the federal reserve rates aren't likely to move from the record low levels just yet, but investors will be listening for the fed's assessment of where the u.s. economy is right now and the fed's outlook for where
7:49 am
it may go next. then there is the april jobs report next week and march's unemployment numbers were a disappointment with 88,000 new hires so exists are hoping to see a lot more new positions during the month of april. with borrowing rates low and drivers looking to drive newer models wall street is expecting auto makers to expect car sales rose as much as 11% in april year over year. most companies have been reporting higher profits, but sales have been lower than expected mostly because of cost-cutting and not because of growth. >> more big earnings reports are due this week from companies like general motors, pfizer, time warner and nbc's parent company, comcast. >> samsung's new galaxy s4 will be shipping this week and it's already a big hit around the world, asia, parts of europe and now it's hoping to take a big bite out of apple's dominance and the iphone 5 dominance in the u.s.
